Enlightened Philosophy An Pb

Full Product Description

An Enlightened Philosophy contributes to the current God debate between writers like Dawkins, Dennett and their respondents like Simon Blackburn, Terry Eagleton, Karen Armstrong and others. Author Geoff Crocker traces Enlightenment thought and its impact on religious belief analysing how and why belief has been eroded, critiquing the role of church in society in terms of the specific interpretation of religion it has offered. He then recognises society's need for a meta narrative which can feed social values and that has classically been provided by myth. From this analytic Crocker proposes a creative synthesis rather than a continuing confrontation between contemporary atheism and religion. This synthesis is built around an increased acknowledgement of the metaphysical dimension in contemporary philosophy the role of myth in social meta narrative and value sets and a focus on myth as the interpretation of the religious text. This new book is intended to be inspiring rather than polemical and offers an enlightening paradigm.The extensive bibliography shows that Crocker's work has been developed from wide reading in classic philosophy, the current God debate and the philosophy of science as well as offering a creative individual contribution.
